Handmade In The UK

All of our gates are handmade right here in the UK. We employ many full time engineers and fabricators who create your new gates, using British steel!

What Our Customers Think

We are a top rated and reviewed UK company. Click the link below to see a selection of our customer reviews!

Fencing Systems

We stock & manufacture a wide range of maintenance free fencing systems, to suit all projects and budgets. From traditional hand crafted metal railings to our advanced Next Gen. composite fencing kits. We also stock these fencing kits in aluminium. 

We can also help with a bespoke design for balcony or juliet fencing, with 2D cad drawings provided prior to manufacture. All of our fencing systems are also available as wall tops.

 

Driveway Gates

Our bespoke driveway gates are available in a wide range of sizes, materials, finishes and configuration options. The majority of our driveway gates are uniformly split, swinging (in or out) and can be any height. However, we can split the gate at any point, for example, one third to two thirds. 

Our most popular product material categories from this range are composite driveway gates, metal driveway gates, aluminium driveway gates & metal framed timber driveway gates.

 

Electric Gates & Intercoms

We have been designing, manufacturing and installing electric driveway gates for many years, which allows us to help design your system. We also are a main distributor for Roger Technology, which is the number one electric gate motor company from Italy. 

We can pre fabricate the electric gate openers brackets & mounts to any of our composite, metal, aluminium or metal framed timber gates, to allow easier install on site. We also offer a range of access control products, such as GSM intercoms, to operate your gate.

 

Bi Fold Gates

As we manufacture everything in house, we can create custom bi fold versions of any gate design or material, to help with properties that require a space saving solution. 

A typical bi fold system consists of 2 individual gates connected together, hanging from a single post or pillar. Usually a driveway opening would consist of 4 leaves (gates) in total. We can also design variations of the standard bi fold system – ‘tri fold’, if required. 

See our material ranges: composite bi fold gates, metal bi fold gates, aluminium bi folds & metal framed timber

 

Path & Garden Gates

100s of designs available throughout our garden gates ranges. Typically bought to match other gates within the property, we can manufacture matching composite garden gates and metal path gates. 

A garden gate is typically around 3ft x 3ft or 1m x 1m, although we cater for all custom sizes! We also manufacture garden gates from other popular materials such as aluminum & metal framed timber. 

 

Tall Side Gates

An extremely popular type of gate, normally around 6ft High and 3ft wide, although we custom make these per order to any size. We also offer tall side gates with matching fixed side panels to accommodate larger gaps. 

Our ‘McAdam’ tall side gate is our best seller, and it’s available in composite, aluminium & cedar/Iroko timber. We also have simple metal security side gates such as the ‘Dover’. 

These tall security gates are maintenance free and can be installed with lock systems and self closing units from locinox. 

 

Sliding Gates

We design and build both tracked sliding gates and cantilever sliding gates. Both systems can be automated, which requires additional hardware, all supplied with our kits.
